We did it
On 2nd April 2016 we successfully raised £1,031 with 14 supporters in 56 days

Three years ago we successfully completed a project to raise awareness of the History of Raglan Village.   A major aspect of the project was to design a new map of the village, to include a walking tour of  local historic buildings.  The map was fitted into an existing wooden structure that had been open to the elements for some time and required 'TLC' in the form of a new timber surrounding frame to make it presentable.  The map is sited at the centre of Raglan Village in Beaufort Square: it has been very popular.Unfortunately, this popular map is also popular with our local bugs!  Many were already living in the map case and after a fine feast on the wood, they seem to die but not before producing offspring!  We need to have a new display case built to replace the current one and would also like to add a box to the framework to hold the trail information sheets that support the map.  Please help us to keep our local history alive and the bugs out!!!
